Whoa, Check Out This Calligraphy By Betsy Dunlap

Now don't take the complete absence of any mention of calligraphy and the near-complete silence on the subject of birth announcements as a sign that I don't appreciate a good, handwritten announcement. On the contrary, I'm probably just too much of a calligraphy snob to be anything but an annoyance to anyone who isn't.

We designed the kid's birth announcement to match the insanely awesome wedding invitation/announcements we got back in the day at Mrs. John L. Strong. Good times. Unfortunately, in the interim, our wonderful, old school calligrapher had departed us, gone to sign her name in the Book of Life, so we were back to square one.

If only we'd known about calligraphy artist Betsy Dunlap. Dunlap is not old school; in fact, her work is so cool, she tested out. Got her GED and an honorary doctorate to boot.

We now return you to your regular, calligraphy-free, scheduled program.
